Changing Table on Pack n Play - Question for BTDT moms

Please excuse my ignorance - I am trying to make sense of all this!

I will be living in a 1br apt for the first 3 mos so I am trying to maximize space. I am registering for the Graco Pack n Play that has the Bassinet and Changing table and plan to use this for the baby to sleep in for the first few months. What I was wondering was how functional is the changing table? Could I rely on this attachment as my sole changing table or should I still plan to get one.

Thank you soooo much Chat Icon Chat Icon Chat Icon Chat Icon

it works great, but you do want to check the weight/height limit on the changing tray. The bassinett is high enough that you can change on that too....

plus there is always the bed or the couch!

Its definitely fine for the beginning...I never really used the changing table past the newborn phase..and never even had one with the twins...so if space is a big concern I wouldnt get one...

I will have the same type of pack n play for the newborn period but after that I wont get another changing table.

I agree about the height thing...we have a changing towere in the baby's room but I find myself using the one on the pack and play exclusively....backache and all Chat Icon

Mine worked great. I didn't use it as my primary changing table, but if I had to use it as my primary one, I would not have a problem with it. It is really convenient, and is perfectly safe as long as you follow the weight limitations.

I used the pack and play as my primary changing table (since we had it downstairs in my living room) for about 1 year--so for me, *definitely* worth it!!!!

I love it. I haven't even used my real changing table yet. Our current house is multi-level and it is way easier to just use that one.

I *believe* the weight limit 10lbs and 15 lbs for the bassinett part.

Mine had the bassinet changing table, it was my lifesaver since I have a bi level home.

I used the bassinet part/changing table til she was about 4-5 months old.

Graco weight limits are 15 lbs for bassinet and 25 lbs for changing table part.
